Sometimes for virus or trojan horse you may difficulties opening your drives. Your autorun.inf is infected if you find any abnormal language when you right-click on a drive. This autorun.inf file is hidden and you will not see the file even though you select to show your all files from Folder Options.

1. Goto Start --> Run and type cmd then click OK.
2. If you want to remove the infected file from drive C: then type C: then press Enter.
3. Type "autorun.inf" and press Enter.
4. Type "del autorun.inf" then press Enter. The file is in the drive but not showing or you can't delete it now.
5. Now type "attrib autorun.inf -s -h -r" and press Enter.
6. Now delete the file by typing "del autorun.inf" and press Enter.
7. Restart the computer.

Good Luck!

Drive not open on 'double-click'


Open 'Notepad' and write following code.
---------------------------------------------------------
[autorun]
open=C:\Windows\explorer.exe
---------------------------------------------------------
Save file as 'autorun.inf'.
Copy/replace this file on all drives/partitions that are not opening on double-click.
Restart PC and now all drives should open with normal double-click.

How to remove Autorun.inf


Here are some typical malware which can install autorun.inf.exe file to your computer and give your computer a critical strike.
Autorun.inf virus contains three execute files which are kavo.exe, ntdelect.com and autorun.inf. All of them are hidden files. You cannot find the by showing hidden files. The only way to find them is to use DOS command.

Not all user have computer savvy. I was suffered from this virus a lot. Success got rid of it using RegTool and want to share it with you.

To remove Autorun.inf

Tools you need RegTool and AVG anti-virus.

Also here is an easy way to remove Autorun.inf manually!

click Start>Run>enter “CMD” them you will see and command window. In the command prompt, you can search for any exe.files. First we can disable “read only” and “hidden” attributes.
Enter the word in prompt.
Check C drive: key in dir c:\/a/w
2 then
attrib -s -h -r c:\autorun.inf
attrib -s -h -r c:\ ntdelect.com
You can use the same way to disable attributes of other drive such like D, E, etc.
3 OK, everything is done, we can now remove these two files.
For C drive, you can enter
del c:\autorun.inf
del c:\ntdelect.com

The same to D drive
How about kavo.exe? You need to repeat step1 and step 2 to disable attributes.
The delete command is different with them.
attrib -s -h -r c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe
del c:\windows\system32\kavo.exe

last thing you should do:
Open registry editor by entering Regedit.
Go to HKEY_LOCAL-MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Run
Remove Kavo value.

D drive not open.


If it happens to you that you are not able to open the drives by double click, then your system may be infected with virus. When this virus infects your windows, it automatically creates a autorun.inf in the root directory of each drive. This autorun.inf file is usually hidden, read only and is a system file. This virus also disables folder option. This is not a major problem and can be fixed by deleting autorun.inf file.


  1. Open Start > Run. Now type cmd and press enter. Command prompt window will open.
  2. Type cd/
  3. Type attrib -r -h -s autorun.inf
  4. Now type del autorun.inf
  5. Now type d: and press enter for d: drive partition and repeat steps 3 and 4.
  6. Repeat step 5 for all your hard disk drives.
  7. Restart your computer.

Windows Cannot Find "Copy.exe"


When i installed AVG Free last time it removed few virus including "copy.exe". so whenever i go to "My Computer" (win key + E) and double click on any hard drive then i find an error stating that (Windows cannot find "Copy.exe").
Solution:
Well the solution for this "copy.exe" conundrum is to get rid of a file called autorun.inf in each of the infected hard drives. here's the solution for the problem......

Make sure you or the virus scanner is run through the infected hard drives/flash drives. to make sure the virus files is gone.
Now, some forums said you could just select "Show Hidden Files" from the option and this would enable you to see "autorun.inf" file.
Also, some entries in the "autorun.inf"may be legitimate. so to check the file (even when you can't see the file) do this: Type in the infected hard drive label followed by autorun.inf for example f:\autorun.inf
This will load autorun.inf file in notepad.if the only entry is that incriminating copy.exe then this is what i did. i tried to overwrite the file with the same name autorun.inf. that din't work because autorun file was readonly. so i saved that blank file on the desktop and simply cut it and pasted it into the drive, then selecting the overwrite option. that should stop that annoying windows cannot find "copy.exe" message every time you double click into a drive. this will solve the problem!
